Omega 3 Fatty acids in freshwater fish from south Brazil

Journal of the American Oil Chemists' Society 72(10): 1207-1210

Omega 3 Fatty acids in freshwater fish from south Brazil

Lipid and fatty acid levels in the edible flesh of 17 freshwater fish from Brazil's southern region were investigated. Analyses of fatty acid methyl esters were performed by chromatography. Palmitic acid was the predominant saturated fatty acid, accounting for 50-70% of total saturated acids. Oleic acid was the mostly abundant monounsaturated fatty acid. Linoleic acid, linolenic acid and docosahexaenoic acid were the predominant polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA).

Robb-Nicholson, C., 2002: By the way, doctor. In your June 2002 issue, you reported on the health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids in fish, especially those found in deep, cold waters. Do these benefits come only from fish caught in the wild, or do farm-raised fish contain comparable amounts of such fatty acids?. Harvard Women's Health Watch 10(3): 8-8
